9 minutes and 35 seconds is a lot of time to commit to one track, I know. But trust me, as one of three murder ballads on his upcoming album, 'Wendell Walker' is an absolute beauty. Avoiding any and all obvious signatures it is an elegant storytelling composition, one that I personally consider to be a modern postscript to the Hendrix classic 'Hey Joe'. Controlled, patient, heart-rending..
Many have been completely enraptured by his timeless and tender songcraft. Often compared to Tobias Jesso Jr, Sufjan Stevens, M Ward, Elliott Smith and Harry Nilsson, watch this and you'll see why these hefty comparisons are fully justified.
